HIRE SAM STONE

You can now book me to do Creative Writing and Drama-Based Workshops or book me for After Dinner Speeches, Conventions and Events.

All age groups and levels catered for.

Schools, Libraries, Writing Groups, and Private or Corporate Functions welcome.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM MY WRITING WORKSHOPS.

Workshops can run for 1-2 hours and are focused on what YOU need. The focus could be on: Descriptive Writing; Writing Effective Openings; Dos and Don'ts of Professional Publishing; Writing Horror; Writing Steampunk; Writing Fantasy; How to Get Published; Self Publishing; The Art of Story Telling; Writing Novels; Writing for Screen; Writing for Stage; Writing for Audio; and so on.
Delivery will be in a variety of learning styles throughout, again tailored to the audience.

All my workshops and talks encourage attendees to create and share their own work during the session, with feedback given by myself and by peer assessment designed to encourage, enthuse and to help aspiring writers develop their skills with confidence.

I can also present 'follow up' workshops for Stage Plays that are drama based. This is essentially an opportunity for writers to direct their own play and learn from what works and what doesn't in this media by experimentation and performance. Geared to all ages. An excellent cross curriculum exercise for both Drama, English and Performing arts subjects. This workshop works well if done with English students in the morning - writing short plays in groups/pairs. In the afternoon the plays are then given to drama groups in order to 'workshop' them through cold reading and performance.

The day ends with peer, class teachers (where relevant) and my own assessment, as well as a self evaluation exercise for the writers after seeing their work performed.
